Celebrating 90 years

A.D. Albritton and J.F. Williams formed Albritton Williams as a partnership in Quincy, Florida in 1928. The company began as a residential and light commercial builder. In the 30’s, the company expanded by opening an office in the Tallahassee area. The Tallahassee office, known as ‘Albritton Williams of Tallahassee,’ was incorporated as Albritton Williams, Inc. in 1949. when A.D. Albritton was the President and T. Edwin Chason was the Vice President. Upon the retirement of Mr. Albritton in 1957, Edwin Chason and his brother, Thad J. Chason, purchased the majority interest of the corporation, and it has remained in the Chason family since that time.

Since inception, Albritton Williams (AW) has achieved a reputation for quality construction. This reputation was initially noted as Mr. Albritton and Mr. Williams were recognized for the personal attention they gave to each project. This foundation was further solidified under the direction of Edwin Chason and Thad Chason as they carried on these Judeo-Christian traditions of quality, integrity, and personal attention. Their leadership built AW into a company name that people have come to recognize and trust.

Today, Albritton Williams’ principals, Jim Chason and Jack Chason, lead with the same founding principles handed down from their predecessors; quality, integrity, and personal attention. With a well trained, dedicated, and experienced staff, Albritton Williams provides construction services for the commercial, industrial and public markets as a Construction Manager or General Contractor.

With 90 years of service as a General Contractor / Construction Manager, AW has established itself as a premier player in the Construction Industry. This history, coupled with Jim and Jack’s 80 years of combined experience, provides clients with the confidence that AW’s Team can make a difference on the project assigned. We have established construction professionals and skilled workforce who have extensive experience providing construction services for the commercial, industrial, and governmental markets.

We provide a combination of seasoned experience blended with fresh innovation to lead into the 21st Century. Regardless of the size of the project, Albritton Williams remains committed to bringing our clients quality construction, projects on time, and within budget.


The relationship which has developed between FSU and Albritton Williams has been one of admiration. They continue to uphold the values of their company through keeping the best interest of the Owners in mind by finishing projects on time and within budget.
